Android vs. iPhone

5 Points to Help You Decide between iPhone and Android

iPhone or Andoid? This is one of the most common questions that you will encounter today. If you think you could easily decide through ‘taste’ alone, think again. You might want to consider these 5 points to make your decision more productive.

1. PC or Mac?

Ten years ago this wasn’t a raging debate, now with all these peripherals this is now an important consideration. If you’re using a Mac computer, you will be more comfortable using an iOS device. And aside from familiarity, you can also easily integrate all your iOS devices.

2. Are you a Google user?

I live and work with Google. All my files, connection, social media, entertainment, including my identity are on Google. Using Android is easy to integrate all data and information to a Google account to an Android phone. Of course, iOS can also do this, but there is more Google supports in Android in comparison to iOS.

3. What your friends are using?

Applications such as Dropbox, Yahoomail, Facebook, and others, can be used on both devices. But they operate differently on each platform and you might encounter a problem with compatibility if your friends are using a different device.

4 Virus, Malware, and spam

If you’re still not familiar with viruses and malware, an iOS device is best for you. iOS protects their users from these threats by filtering their products and downloads. iOS products are exclusively available in App Store. This will limit your freedom and your option, but you can guarantee for a clean download.

Android however, has more options to choose from. They are more open to developers of software that you could use in your Android. But this also makes your mobile phone prone to threats. With Android, you’re on your own. But if you know how to protect your device from such threats, Android could work for you.

5. Professional uses

Remember Blackberry? Well now both devices can be use for professional purpose. But it depends on which will be compatible to your corporate network if you intend it to use to access your company’s resources. You could apply tip number one for this subject.
